Redwings Hapton Open Day

From Sunday 23rd July 2017 10:00 to 16:00

The UK’s largest horse sanctuary is opening the doors to its Norfolk headquarters this July for an exclusive look behind the scenes.

Although the Sanctuary has visitor centres across the UK, it is only on special occasions that Redwings opens its headquarters to the public, so there is a great deal of anticipation for the return of the Redwings Hapton Open Day this summer – and with a jam-packed schedule of activities in store, the event definitely will not disappoint!

A fun day for all the family, the event will include tours of the charity’s Horse Hospital by its veterinary team where visitors can meet rescued horses and donkeys, and find out about how the charity cares for its 1,500 residents – of which almost 350 live at their 350-acre headquarters. 

Redwings’ rehoming team will be showcasing how the charity trains its horses – many of whom have been rescued as completely unhandled or semi-feral – to get them ready to find loving homes outside the Sanctuary. And special guests Norfolk Fire and Rescue will be there on the day to offer a fascinating demonstration of how they rescue animals from tricky situations – with the help of training model horse Randy of course!

There will also be lots of opportunities for visitors to get hands-on with the horses themselves with “Meet the ponies” tours, pony grooming and even a chance to meet Redwings’ mascots Red and Wings – so don’t forget your wellies! Black Beauty, also known as May, will be there on the day to visit too!

After all that fun, visitors can take their pick from a range of hot and cold food and drink options, as well as peruse the charity’s bring and buy sale offerings or shop Redwings’ exclusive gift range, which will be available at special discounted rates for the day.

Entrance to the Redwings Hapton Open Day is completely free and every visitor will receive a free tea or coffee voucher to be redeemed at any of the charity’s five UK visitor centres, which are open all year round.
